Harlem Attractions in New York City

Today's Harlem encompasses a diverse group of sub-neighborhoods and residents, including East or Spanish Harlem (First Avenue to Fifth Avenue, East 96th-125th Streets); Central Harlem (Central Park North to the Harlem River, Fifth Avenue to St. Nicholas Avenue); and West Harlem, including Hamilton Heights and Sugar Hill (West 123rd to 155th Streets, St. Nicholas Avenue to the Hudson River). It's still a top destination for artists, as well as those interested in African-American history and culture: in addition to the Cotton Club, check out the legendary Apollo Theatre on West 125th Street, the launching ground for such iconic performers as Billie Holiday, Thelonius Monk, Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.
